I keep getting outbidThe last three houses I have made offers on I offered the asking price and I would pay closing costs. People are offering more than what the houses are worth. Once the house is appraised and it isn't worth what the offer is, then the seller and buyer agree to a different price? So I should make an offer more than what the house is worth so I will get a winning offer and see about the negotiating after the house is appraised?
